Fun Taylor clip

Well obviously I'm Team Edward, but I thought this was pretty cute. Plus I found out Taylor is a fan of the Michigan Wolverines. Smart kid!

(Sorry, there's a short ad in the beginning.)

I'm pretty sure he can take him

Yeah, yeah, back to New Moon. I don't know about you, but I've been eating up all the New Moon press tour footage.

Anyway, as I've mentioned before, I'm really impressed with what they've done with the wolves. But this kind of made me laugh.

Now I'm pretty sure the books imply that if there was an Edward vs. Jacob battle, Edward would win. And I think RPattz confirmed the same in an interview. But looking at the film interpretation... c'mon! Jacob could totally tear apart Edward! How strong and fast could Edward possibly be compared to wolf boy?

Anyway, I am very excited for next Friday.

Making the most of my palette

So it has come to my attention that perhaps not all of my readers are as anxious as I am for November 20th to get here and actually aren't all that interested in Twilight. (the horror!!!)

And since I did declare this to be both a pop culture and makeup blog, I should talk some makeup, right?

As most of my friends know, I am a MAC addict. Although I am an equal opportunity "product whore" (stole that title from a biz card of another makeup artist), I have a special place in my heart for MAC Cosmetics.

Especially their eye shadows... I have two eyeshadow palettes both completely filled plus a bunch of their other eyeshadow compacts from some of their various collections (I realize this actually isn't that bad compared to most other MAC junkies). I recently picked up three new shadows with no home for them. I could buy a new eyeshadow palette but 1) why spend the $$$ and 2) why add one more thing to lug around in my already busting to the seams makeup bag(s).

Below is my cool/color palette. (The other one has my warm/neutral colors.) As you can see, there is currently no room at the inn.

I decided to copy some of the Youtube makeup people I follow and just take the tray out of my palette like so. It wasn't too tricky, you just have to be careful not to break the whole tray in half when snapping it out.

And voila! Now I have room for my three new shadows plus a whole bunch more :) For now, I organized them by splitting the shimmery shades from the matte ones but I'm sure that will change as I pick up new colors.

As you can tell from the pics, my new additions to my collection are white, yellow, and orange - all mattes. I got them for a look I did today which I am absolutely thrilled with! My best creation to date, if I do say so myself, heehee! See if you can guess what kind of look it was (except for those who are privy to what shoots I have this week!) and I'll reveal a pic in a later post.
